The Franklin Police Departmentwill continue to adjust to the evolving demands of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. As we do, we would like to reassure the public that the day-to-day operations of the Franklin Police Department will continue. We will continue to respond to the service calls and provide City-wide patrols. Our lobby will also remain open to the public.
As a result of the State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 Virus, and to maintain social distancing, citizens experiencing the need to report non-emergency incidents to the Franklin Police Department can do so by filling out the Online Request for Police Services form. Once the form is submitted, an officer will contact the citizen via telephone to gather further information for a follow-up investigation, if necessary. If a crime is currently in progress or if this is an emergency, dial 9-1-1.
The Franklin Police Department recognizes that some members of our community may have special needs or may react differently when coming into contact with police officers or firefighters during an emergency situation. The Special Needs Registry is available for all residents requiring special needs resulting from a physical, emotional, or medical condition which will assist emergency responders in providing a more informed response to those with special needs during an emergency.
Residents and business owners can help in combating crime by registering their video surveillance system with the Franklin Police Department through the Camera Registry Program. The Police Department will NOT have direct access to your camera surveillance system, but would simply request your help with any potential video evidence.
Please wait while we gather your results.
Police Chief Rick Oliva's response to inquiries about the Franklin Police Department's commitment to the "8cantwait" campaign and how the Franklin Police Department currently does business.
It is fundamental that Franklin Police officers earn the respect of the public that they are sworn to protect and serve. When officers violate laws or ignore department policy, they are immediately held accountable. The Franklin Police Department does not tolerate excessive force. Our department has worked hard, since the inception of the Community Policing concept, to adhere to these principles and strongly believe in policing with our community.
The Franklin Police Department offers a Prescription Drug Collection Program for Franklin residents to protect our children and our environment. A collection container is available 24 hours a day located in the lobby of the Franklin Police Department.

The Franklin Police Department has teamed up with Crime Reports, a web service that allows citizens to view up-to-date information on nearly all police calls for service. This service maps incidents and allows people to see exactly what has transpired in their neighborhood on a daily basis. There is a 24-hour delay in uploading of the information. Please note that some activity will not be displayed either because it is part of an ongoing investigation or is sensitive in nature. To avoid identifying victims, all crime addresses have been rounded to the block level.
